“TOKYO, Dec. 5 (UPI) — Japan’s advancements in artificial intelligence could soon have an impact on everyday government operations.
Tokyo is looking into AI as a resource for parliament, and is considering the use of computers for administrative tasks, the Yomiuri Shimbun reported Monday.
Jobs computers could fulfill include drafting responses that can be submitted to parliament.
Japan’s trade ministry told the Yomiuri the AI would be first required to study summaries of the parliament’s agenda from the past five years.
Once the computer has familiarized itself with the history, it would be programmed to answer questions that may arise during policymaking, according to the report.”
